Available for iOS is The Dark Knight Rises. The game is based on the plot of the movie. Sadly I can’t give a proper review of the game because every time I start it up and get to the point pictured below and the game crashes. Sadly this isn’t even 5 minutes into the game.

So I would keep an eye on the AppStore for an update past 1.0.0 as the current version crashes BAD. I’ve read on other blogs that the app is bad about app crashes so my issue isn’t unique. What a shame on Gameloft for releasing a sub-par product!
UPDATE!!!:

After deleting the app from my iPhone, restarting, then re-installing the app it runs much better but not without the typical memory based crashes. Gameplay is very simple as with every iOS game of this type. Pressing one button sends out a combo of kicks and punches. Another is jumping or gliding. Movement is made possible by a virtual stick that only appears when touching the left of the screen and sliding your thumb around the right side changes the view point. Being a game somewhat on par with PSP graphics the price is fairly good. Back in the early days of the AppStore this game could have easily cost $19.99. If you don’t mind the random memory based crashes I definitely suggest grabbing this game. I’d give this a rating of 8 out of 10, one point lost for controls and one for crashes! Thoughts and prayers to the families of the 12 lives lost at The Dark Knight Rises premier in Aurora Co.!
